SMi Group are proud to present the 7th Annual Defence Logistics Eastern Europe CONFERENCE in 2022. Please note all agenda times are in Central European Time.

The Defence Logistics Eastern Europe conference is revered as the highest-level meeting for defence logistic leaders and supply chain managers from the region’s most forward-thinking military nations. As the only logistics conference specifically dedicated to Eastern Europe we are focused on bringing senior supply chain leaders from the region and beyond together to discuss current and future priorities and developments.

With over 120 attendees each year, this focused meeting is a must for all wishing to stay up to date on defence logistics in the Central and Eastern European region.

Defence Logistics Eastern Europe 2022 will continue to break the mould and create an event that will assist the learning and development of logistics procurement directors and supply chain managers through briefings and focused discussion groups.

As cooperation between armed forces, and the prevalence of joint logistics operations increases, so the importance of defence logistics as a capability in its own right continues to grow.

We strive to deliver real insight and learning experiences through the expertly selected speakers, all who are recommended through our extensive research and consultation that is carried out across the industry.

- Keynote Briefings from senior officers from Central and Eastern Europe

- A unique focus on defence logistics technology and joint force interoperability

- High level panel discussions featuring supply chain and procurement managers from the military as well as industry

- Military logistics equipment exhibition showcasing the latest technology

- Informal networking time factored in so you can gather insight from peers and colleagues also shaping and influencing regional logistic systems today

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
